Start 2019 doing something amazing - take on #challenge15 and cover 15 miles to help save a baby’s life.

15 babies die before, during or shortly after birth every day in the UK. We've launched #challenge15 to highlight this appalling fact and to raise £15,000 to help support bereaved families, raise awareness and help reduce the number of baby deaths in the UK.

You decide how


Whether you’re a cyclist, a runner, a jogger or a plodder, you can take part in #challenge15 and help us provide the support and services needed for anyone affected by the death of a baby.

You might be a seasoned runner who wants to take on 15 miles in under two hours; a newbie who wants to try five 5k jogs over 5 weeks; or a walker, cyclist or swimmer who wants to make this challenge your own – you decide how you want to take part in #challenge15 and we’ll be there to support you every step of the way.

Take a look at info guide, selfie signs, promotional posters and milestone badges to help spread the word about your event.

You can make a difference

We are asking everyone to get involved to commit to raising £150 – so if you ask 10 people to sponsor you just £1 a mile you’ve already reached your target!

So this January dust off your trainers and get your 2019 off to an incredible start by joining #TeamSands on our dedicated JustGiving page.

With your help we can work towards a future where fewer babies die.
